Provide a case brief on both Stanford v Kentucky and Roper v Simmons. A legal brief requires the following: the case title, statement of the issue of the case, the details of the case background, and the way in which the court ruled, with an explanation supporting that ruling.
At the conclusion of these legal briefs, take a stand on which ruling you think was correct. Do you support the original decision in Stanford? Or, do you think the court was correct in striking down Stanford in the Roper ruling?
